Description: 

Since the start of the war in Yemen in late March 2015, thousands of migrants find themselves in an extremely vulnerable situation. Despite the ongoing conflict, Yemen remains a transit county for thousands of Ethiopian migrants to reach the Arabian Peninsula. Each month, an estimated 10,000 migrants enter Yemen irregularly.

This booklet is a photo story of the International Organization for Migration's (IOM) evacuation assistance including pre-departure, transit and post-arrival assistance to Ethiopian migrants stranded in Yemen. Through this booklet, the return journeys of 414 migrants from Yemen to Ethiopia is documented; this is a project funded by the European Union’s International Cooperation and Development (DEVCO).
